Vigil held in Ottawa for victims of Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

Vigil held in Ottawa for victims of Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

Rabinowitz had "a moral compass stronger than anyone I have ever known", a colleague said.

Local television station KDKA cited police sources as saying Bowers walked into the building and yelled "all Jews must die".

Bowers' virulent anti-Semitic views were evident in prolific online postings.

US President Donald Trump hit out Saturday at what he called "hate" in America after the attack.

The bodies were brought from the synagogue to his office, and Williams said he worked closely with four rabbis.

The affidavit said a tactical team found Bowers on the third floor of the synagogue, where he shot two other officers.

Bowers surrendered after a shootout with a SWAT team.

Suspect Robert Bowers, of suburban Baldwin, sustained multiple-shot injuries and was listed in fair condition at Allegheny General Hospital.

We stand with the victims of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, we stand with the African-American victims of the Kroger shooting in Kentucky last week, we stand with the victims of the white-supremacist shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, with the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting, and beyond. The alleged killer, Gregory Bush, had a history of mental illness and had made racist threats, CNN said, citing court records.

Authorities say that just before 10 a.m., Bower entered the large synagogue with an assault-style rifle and three handguns. "When people do this, they should get the death penalty".

The gunman had posted anti-Semitic content on social network Gab under the username "onedingo", and the bio on his account, now suspended, read: "Jews are the children of Satan".

FBI Special Agent in Charge Bob Jones said Bowers appeared to have acted alone and they are checking his residence for clues.

Khashoggi’s body parts found in Saudi consul general’s home
Riyadh has maintained that neither bin Salman nor his father, King Salman, knew of the operation to target Khashoggi. His death has sparked global condemnation and put major strains on US-Saudi relations.

The shooting came amid a rash of high-profile attacks in an increasingly divided country, including the series of pipe bombs mailed over the past week to prominent Democrats and former officials.

The mass shooting, called the deadliest attack on Jews in USA history, hit particularly close to home for Aaron, who said she used to live just a block away from Tree of Life, which is nestled in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood near several universities.

"Ladies and gentlemen, it has to start with you, our leaders", he said.

But some victims' families reportedly have little desire to see a president blamed by many for fanning hatred, and a group of Jewish leaders from the city released an open letter on Sunday telling Trump he bears responsibility for the shooting.

Mr Trump told reporters later that the killings might have been prevented if there had been an armed guard in the building.

"We are obviously so grateful that it wasn't any more tragic than it already was".

The White House has ordered all USA flags on government property to be flown at half-staff through Wednesday "as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the awful act of violence".

He said he would visit Pittsburgh, but did not say when.

Other vigils were held across Canada including in Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver.

The Anti-Defamation League called this the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the United States.

On April 13, 2014, a pair of shootings occurred at a Jewish community centre and a Jewish retirement community, both located in Overland Park, Kansas. Victims were killed at all three locations where services were going on.
